Losses to Knights give Bulldog swimmers, coach early-season assessment


Ramona High School girls and boys swim coach Jolyn Yanez sees the Bulldogs’ losses to San Marcos as beneficial to her teams.

“I’m actually thankful to have this meet at this time of the season because it forces the kids to focus on swimming fast,” Yanez said. “I think it’s very worthwhile.”

The March 20 non-league meet was held at Ramona High. Non-league results have no effect on a team’s championship position. The major impacts of a non-league meet are that times can be used for CIF qualifying and seeding purposes and that coaches can assess their swimmers for future improvement.

Track and field scoring gives 5 points for first place, 3 points for second place, and 1 point for third place. The Bulldogs swept the points in the 100-meter dash, the 200-meter dash, and the 300-meter hurdles.
